Avocado BLT With Fried Egg And Chipotle Aioli


Avocado BLT With Fried Egg And Chipotle Aioli

Ingredients

8 Slices of Sourdough Bread, toasted with unsalted butter
Chipotle Aioli
Green Leaf Lettuce, rinsed and dried
1 Beefsteak Tomato (or any variety) sliced
12 oz (12 strips) Cooked Smoked Thick Center-Cut Bacon
4 Fried Eggs
1 Firm and ripe Avocado, sliced thickly


Chipotle Aioli
5 Cloves of Garlic, peeled
¼ Cup Olive Oil
2 Chipotle (from can/tin) with a little sauce
1 Egg Yolk
1 tsp of Freshly Squeezed Lime Juice, or to taste
Sea Salt
Freshly Ground Black Pepper

Method

Chipotle Aioli: In a small saucepan, over low heat, cook the olive oil and garlic for about 10 minutes, or until the garlic is softened and light golden brown in color. Remove the garlic and let the oil cool slightly.

Put the garlic, chipotle, egg yolk, a little salt, and a few grinds of pepper in the bowl of the processor fitted with the steel blade and blend well. With processor running, add the reserved oil in a thin, steady stream. When the aioli is emulsified and all the oil has been absorbed, scrape it into a bowl and adjust the seasoning to taste with salt, pepper, and lime juice.

To assemble the sandwich: Spread some chipotle aioli generously over one side of each slice of toasted bread. Top with lettuce on half the bread slices, tomato, bacon, fried egg, and avocado. Cover with the other slice of bread. Press the sandwich firmly, cut into half and serve immediately.

Makes 4 BLT

  2. @joey armstrong: Well, you can mash or finely chop the garlic and Chipotle. Then use a whisk to beat in the egg yolk, and continue to beat in the oil in a thin stream until the aioli is emulsified.

  3. mm very neat cut sandwiches. the fillings tend to squish out when i cut in half like that...

  4. I am adding this to my sandwich rotation! I love fried egg on anything really, and could totally justify having this for breakfast.

  7. It looks as though you have the same problem I do when it comes to BLT's. I can't remember the last time I had a BLT. By the time I get the sandwich all put together it's more like a BLTCTASC (Bacon, Lettus, Tomato, Cheese, Turkey, Avacodo, Sprouts & Cucumber. Oh and don't skimp on on the lemon basil mayo.)

  11. Made this sandwich this afternoon. So, so yummy. I packed in on a picnic and ate it with berries and two other people who enjoyed it just as much. Certainly going to make it again.
